I would be in heaven …
Many people think that they want to jump with a parachute, they want to feel this overwhelming feeling of adrenaline.
This is a simple matter. The main thing is to get trained, and go ahead for a dose of positive and new emotions.
Parachute jumps for beginners can be in tandem with an instructor or a single jump.
Parachute jump in tandem with instructor
Before you jump with an instructor, you do not need to undergo special training in theory and practice, unlike an independent jump.
First you need to undergo a briefing. It takes about half an hour.
The briefing takes place directly on the day of the jump.
The jump is carried out with a domed parachute.
The jump takes place from about a height of 4 thousand meters. When you jump, you feel a state of free fall for about a minute. These are indescribable emotions that are best experienced first hand.
Fly under the dome for about 5 minutes. Next, there is a landing. Since the jump with an instructor, it is sure that the landing will be safe and soft.
Self-jump training, as a rule, takes place as part of a group.
First, theoretical classes take place. The next step is the offset on the topics studied. Those who successfully pass the test are allowed to practice.
First, students go through a medical examination.
Practical training in jumping begins with ground training. Elements are practiced on simulators.
After that, we get acquainted with the safety rules and work out actions with extreme situations.
Jumps are made by a group. The instructor can monitor the execution of jumps from an airplane or in the air, jumping with a group.
When the experience of a skydiver grows, he learns different types of parachutes. After this, the student passes the test for laying and managing a parachute. The student makes the first jump with an instructor, with a parachute “wing”. Only after that he receives a document that gives him the right to jump independently at any airport.
In order for a parachute jump to leave only the pleasure of a free fall and an adrenaline rush it is worth remembering: safety rules, and the fact that the materials of the parachute must be of high quality.
For example, high-quality slings are a guarantee of the athlete’s safety. And can also affect parachute controllability.
To jump or not to jump with a parachute is a personal choice for everyone. But remember that these feelings will become the most memorable in your life.
